Creating ACLs using NCLU

Hey Guys,

So, i'm using a trial version 3.5.0 in a DELL switch S4048-ON. When i configure ACLs using nclu and put the ACLs in the inbound direction, my rule is automatically placed in the iptables FORWARD chain, so, nothing is filtered. According to the manual, i need to put the rule in the control plane using net add control-plane command. When i put the rule there, the filter occurs, but only in interfaces swp. In bond interfaces and in the management interface, i need to alter the 50_nclu_acl.rules and specify the interface to the filter work. Is that correct? I need to do all these steps to use ACL via NCLU or i'm missing something?

When i use iptables directly i don't have any problems.
